Ukraine is rich in Jewish history — all forms of Jewish worship, ritual, and culture. Today, throughout Ukraine, the revival of interest, especially among younger generations, in Jewish learning is burgeoning at annual Limmud FSU conferences and festivals.
Beginning in Yalta in 2008, annual Limmud FSU festivals in Ukraine have become a tradition and central to the resurgence of Jewish life.
Inspiring festivals of Jewish education have been held in Odessa, Truskavetz, Uzhgorod, Vinnitsa, Yalta and Lvov. Today, young Ukrainian Jews eagerly seek to meet new people, attend lectures and master classes, join discussions, hear concerts, and hang out in discos and nightly gatherings – all central to the Limmud FSU experience.

“Limmud is all about people and people of Limmud are very special. They are doing this not because it’s a job, there is no boss and they are not workers. It’s about friendship and togetherness in doing something amazing, unforgettable experience for every single person”
